Stargazing and Star Talk with Michael Lennick

Writer/Director at Foolish Earthling Productions.  Produced the series "Rocket Science" seen on the Discovery Channel.



 "The Lonely Moon"


45 years ago, humanity set foot on the moon. Three and a half years later we stopped going and haven't been back since.  The obvious question is why. Filmmaker and space historian Michael Lennick takes a lively look at how and why we went the first time, and how, why and when we'll return.

Order your tickets here.




Throughout our regular season, we hope you'll join us for an evening of telescope observing, space crafts, space talks and tours. On program nights we check out a wide variety of celestial objects, including the Moon, Jupiter, Mars, Saturn and more.

We're looking forward to another great season exploring the night sky with exciting guest speakers and special events. Check out our 2014 Schedule to book your  tickets early.


The David Dunlap Observatory is home to a wide range of public viewing nights, special events and educational programs. Visiting the 23-ton Great Telescope is an awe-inspiring experience.
